All actors in the market and society, coordinated by the government and with the assistance of the European Union, must be mobilised in order to maximise the development of the workforce skills needed in the economy of the future, European Commission Vice President Margaritis Schinas, said in a message to the Economist Conference taking place in Athens on the topic “Europe: the new era for skills – Greece: the human dynamic in the new workplace and society.”

“All interested parties must be activated and provide the tools for shaping the future human workforce. Digital, green, scientific skills, all are needed,” said Schinas, who is Commissioner with the portfolio on Promoting our European Way of Life. He expressed satisfaction with the participation of both businesses and non-profit organisations in the conference, saying that this “shows that in Greece we have an ecosystem of skills that can generate the desired results.”

The Commissioner stressed the urgency of developing new skills, saying that this was a time of action and that the “European year of skills cannot be a year of discussions, nor a year of Brussels for Brussels’ sake.” He said the current Commission had placed work skills at the “heart of its priorities” by adopting the European agenda for skills, which was also reflected in the national plans of the Recovery and Resilience Facility.

The pandemic, the war in Ukraine, the challenges of the twin transition “leads us to intensify our efforts,” Schinas said, with priority given to “increasing investments for upgrading the skills of the existing human resources and activating more people, especially women and young people that are not employed, to help them find work.”

Among cutting-edge sectors that demanded the development of skills he listed that of batteries, cybersecurity and environmental policy. “We have to create a pool of talent and skills in the EU so that there can be a harmonisation with other agreements and platforms from other countries,” he said, adding that this was a matter not for Brussels but for the people “on the front line”.

Schinas concluded by expressing the European Commission’s readiness to cooperate “to ensure that in Greece, the European Year of Skills has tangible results for the people and society.”
